The 14th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS 2017)

November 5-8, 2017

Orlando, Florida, USA

Call for Papers

IEEE MASS is a premier, annual forum for sharing original, novel ideas in mobile ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks, defined broadly. Continuing this tradition, the 14th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS) will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA, on November 5-8, 2017. Wireless ad hoc communications, Internet of Things, and mobile computing are increasingly being used in civilian and military applications in homes and businesses, cities and rural areas, sea and space. Wireless sensor and actuator networks are being widely deployed for enhancing industrial processes and management, for various forms of environmental monitoring and control, and for improving quality of life. Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE MASS 2017 aims at bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners to address recent advances in mobile ad-hoc and sensor-actuator systems, covering algorithms, theories, systems, protocols, applications, experiments, and testbeds.

Topics of Interest

Original, unpublished contributions are solicited in all aspects of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and wireless sensor networks (WSNs), from mobile networking/computing to cyber-physical systems to Internet of Things, from theory to systems to applications.
